It’s not often that we get to visit a city that pretty much has no bad sites, bites, or adventures. San Diego is bursting with things to do, places to see, and authentic foods that you must try. From Little Italy to La Jolla Cove, these are the top 4 places we’re stopping by at during the 2023 APTA Combined Sections Meeting in San Diego, California February 23rd-25th.
That’s amore. And you’ll be feeling the love in San Diego’s Little Italy. Experience authentic Italian cuisine, including baked goods and desserts. Know as San Diego’s oldest continuous neighborhood business district has continued to be a vibrant ethnic business and residential community since the 1920s. Little Italy is filled with patio cafés, restaurants, pubs, art galleries, shops, hotels, and the beautiful Amici Park. Discover what Little Italy has to offer.
Have you ever wondered what life was like the Mexican and early American periods of 1821 to 1872? Old Town San Diego State Historic Park offers you a chance to take a step back in time and experience early American and Mexican periods through shops, eats, and music and culture. Explore lush gardens, unique shops, authentic cuisines, and sizzling nightlife adventures. Sure, they didn’t have Teslas back then but they sure did know how to have a good time.
A bit of a drive from the convention center but well worth it. La Jolla is known for its breathtaking ocean views and friendly seals. Loved by locals and visitors from around the world, time seems to stop when you’re perusing the shops or combing the seal-laced beach. Snorkeling, cove exploring, art and so much more is available in La Jolla but the views alone are enough to jusitfy the drive.
Known as the heart and soul of downtown San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter offers a wide variety of entertainment options, including bars, clubs, cigar lounges, comedy shows, live music performances, and even rooftop escapes to avoid the crowded and busy streets. Check out the #GasLampQuarter hashtag on social to discover all the incredible bites, stays, and sites downtown San Diego has to offer.
